Delta1212 Posted March 30, 2017 Share Posted March 30, 2017 The discussion is about the contribution of the BH gravitational field, not of the spaceship acceleration. Since several of you seem not to understand the concept, I can give a rigorous proof that a rod falling radially into a BH gets stretched due to the gravitational field of the BH. That is precisely what I said. (Proper) acceleration is absolute, meaning that it isn't relative to the gravitating body. Right, but there is a difference between "being on a space ship" and "being on a spaceship with a prop acceleration away from the black hole", the latter of which, as swansont pointed out, was not stipulated until your last post.
